Introducing new IFLAC Intern Rachel UngerPosted: 2014/03/04
We have a new IFLAC assistant. Rachel Unger will be with us throughout her semester at Haifa University. “Literature is an important way to spread the message of peace and bridge intercultural differences,” she says.
This is her own introduction:My name is Rachel Unger, and I am excited to be a new assistant at IFLAC. I am a junior at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, USA, majoring in Government with a concentration in comparative politics and minoring in French Studies, but I am currently studying abroad for the semester at Haifa University in the Honors Peace and Conflict Studies program. I will be interning at IFLAC throughout the semester.
I am very excited to be joining an organization that does such valuable work. Literature is an important way to spread the message of peace and bridge intercultural differences. I visited Israel for the first time last summer as a volunteer at Project Harmony Israel, a summer camp for Jewish and Arab children that takes place at the Hand in Hand School in Jerusalem. The children I worked with last summer inspired me, and I am very happy to continue working towards peace with IFLAC.
We are happy to have you on board, Rachel!
